Our vision with this programme is to contribute to building coaching cultures within organisations. As the internal coaching trend is emerging, we aim to significantly support Senior Leaders and HR professionals to go through this transformational journey.

And this is our approach:

Coaching is about a systemic approach to the Client, having in mind their environment, business challenges, level of motivation, values and expected results.

A coaching relationship ensures confidential, Client-oriented form of cooperation.

The Coach knows that the Clients themselves are the best source of inspiration and solutions, which they reach in the course of the coaching session.

Approach to coaching

As a coach I have a motto “don’t ever doubt that you are able to achieve whatever you will dream for yourself”. I am an “enabler” for my clients being supportive, empowering and encouraging, as well as challenging at the same time. In coaching I am using both coactive approach and aiming towards finding the essence of what is the most important for my client. In coaching I am “dancing with a client” in order to be always on the client agenda. I believe that this is the client who is naturally resourceful and whole and all I need to do as a Coach is bring this up to light through coaching.

Approach to coaching

”I have been passionate about self-development, training and coaching for years. I believe there are no limits to what the clients can achieve and who they can become. Passion and willingness to act are the keys to their success. I admire leaders whose leadership is based on authenticity and inner strength.
I am convinced that being natural and true in the long run may benefit way more than clever manipulation in achieving desired goals.”

Approach to coaching

”I believe that we are all born to be happy. I also like to believe that the coaching process with executives has great impact not only on their own but also on wellness of the people around them;  by that, helping to turn this world into a happier and better place to live in. In my work, I talk to the client as a whole - without separating business and private part; this way, during the process, all systems that the client belongs to are being taken care of. I listen to the unspoken, inviting all emotional and logical parts to unite and making the best possible outcomes for the client and the organization.”
